House Republicans On Track To Increase Latino Members By 50 Percent Over Next Year

House Republicans are going to increase the number of Latino members in their ranks by a significant margin over the next year.

The election of Mayra Flores in southern Texas was just the beginning.

This represents a major shift in American politics and it does not bode well for Democrats.

A key ingredient to flip the House: A wave of Latino GOP candidates

A large and diverse group of Latino candidates will be representing the Republican Party on the November ballot this year — forming a key piece of the party’s push to win more Latino voters.

House Republicans could be on track to increase their number of Latino members in 2023 by 50 percent — or more — after concerted recruitment efforts and a slew of summer primary wins by Hispanic and Latino candidates from Oregon to Texas to Virginia.

The latest victory came Tuesday night in southern Arizona from Juan Ciscomani, a first-generation American who moved from Mexico to the U.S. as a child and worked on border and trade issues as a top adviser to GOP Gov. Doug Ducey.

Now, the party has landed Hispanic nominees in more than a half dozen battleground districts — and another three are well positioned to win their primaries over the next month.

It’s a diversity push that takes on added significance because the GOP has recently begun aggressively courting Latino voters since Trump’s surprising surge in heavily Hispanic areas of the country in 2020.

“The Hispanic community has felt kind of in the middle, ignored,” Ciscomani said. Democrats have taken them for granted, he noted, while Republicans have not often considered them to be persuadable voters.

Mayra Flores is already advancing legislation.

Congress is going to look very different a year from now and that’s a good thing.
